Medicare Supplement Plan F

Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan F* is the most comprehensive plan offered by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico. This plan is the most popular choice among seniors simply because it offers the most protection of all the standardized plans offered in the state. With this plan, you can count on coverage for deductibles, copays, coinsurance, and additional benefits Original Medicare does not provide.

Medicare Supplement Plan F and High Deductible Plan F are only available to those individuals who turned 65 before January 1, 2020.


Medicare has been helping seniors like you get dependable health care for generations. But it wasn’t designed to pay for everything. Out-of-pocket expenses can be high, even with Medicare benefits. This plan offers Medicare recipients complete coverage including Part A hospital deductible and coinsurance, the cost for 365 days of hospital care after Medicare coverage ends, Part B deductible and any Part B excess charges Medicare will not pay.

Provides supplemental Medicare coverage for hospitalization (Part A), medical services (Part B), skilled nursing facility care, hospice care, and home healthcare-approved services. That means Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan F pays the 20 percent remaining costs for you to receive semi-private room and board, general nursing and miscellaneous services and supplies as well as outpatient medical services, supplies and treatment, physician services, physical and speech therapy, diagnostic tests and durable medical equipment. In addition, your coinsurance for days 21-100 of skilled nursing care is covered, as are the first three pints of blood 100 percent, and 80 percent of any foreign emergency care you need up to $50,000 during your lifetime.

Medicare Supplement Plan F and High Deductible Plan F are only available to those individuals who turned 65 before January 1, 2020.

* Plan F also has an option called a high-deductible Plan F. This high-deductible plan pays the same or offers the same benefits as Plan F after one has paid a calendar year $2,800 deductible. Benefits from high-deductible Plan F will not begin until out-of-pocket expenses are $2,800.

Out-of-pocket expenses for this deductible are expenses that would ordinarily be paid by the policy. These expenses include the Medicare deductibles for Part A and Part B but do not include the plan’s separate foreign travel emergency deductible.

** Hospital benefits must be provided by facilities participating in Medicare. Payments are limited to the reasonable charge as determined by Medicare.

*** After 90 days of hospitalization, Medicare benefits are paid from a one-time lifetime reserve of 60 additional days (days 91-150) which are not renewable for each benefit period. See your Outline of Coverage for details and limitations of these benefits.

† After the $240 Part B deductible is met for Plans A, B, F, High Deductible Plan F, and Plan N.

†† Foreign Travel Emergency covered at 80% after the first $250 each is paid each calendar year; up to $ 50,000-lifetime maximum.
